Can I ask you a question?
Learning Zone Staff Development Session
Practice your Learning
- Pick one of the other two articles (“Earthlike planets…” or “The History of Mardi Gras”) and read it.
- Use the Q-Matrix to create 2-3 higher-level questions (outside Area 51) and scaffold down with 1-2 questions that are more basic (inside Area 51).
- Compare questions with a partner and/or Mishler before you leave.
Apply & Evaluate your Learning
Within the next month, you are tasked with using the Q-matrix to write higher-level questions for several lessons (we can’t get good at it if we only do it once). Keep notes on how the students respond to the questions during discussion/activities and how the summative assessments are impacted (positively or negatively). You will need these notes for our April Learning Zone meeting.
